==> What is neighborhood watch?

Neighborhood Watch is simply a program of neighbors watching other neighbors' property during times when burglaries are likely to occur.

A police officer patrolling your neighborhood may not recognize a stranger in your yard - but your neighbors would!

If you see something suspicious do this:

Write down the description of suspicious person(s). Get the make, model, color and license number of strange vehicles. Call the sheriff's department (911) immediately.

If you are going away...

Leave the following information with a trusted friend or neighbor:

  1. Where you are going.
  2. How you can be reached, in case of an emergency.
  3. When you expect to return.
  4. If anybody will be at your home... a gardener or repairman, etc.
What To Do When You're Going Away
  • Stop newspaper and mail deliveries, or arrange for a neighbor to pick them up.
  • Make arrangements to have your grass cut and watered while you are gone.
  • Store extra cash and valuables in a bank safety deposit box.
  • Arrange for a neighbor to watch your house. Give them a key, and let them know where you can be reached in an emergency.
  • Notify the sheriff's department.

What To Do When Your Neighbors Are Away

  • Know exactly when your neighbors are leaving and when they will return.
  • Collect any newspapers, mail and advertising circulars if they are delivered.
  • Make a daily check of the premises. Inspect all windows and doors.
  • Don't tell any inquiring strangers that your neighbors are away on a trip.

Does it work?

Neighborhood Watch works through mutual aid --neighbors watching out for neighbors. Neighbors know who you are and what type of car you own. They may be the first to notice a burglar at your window, or a strange car in your driveway. But, remember, each neighbor can effectively watch only homes to each side, and to the front or back of his home.
